    Hi all, so if I start all over again with a new domain and new content, should I redirect my penguin slapped site to the new URL while I build new links? or will the 301 redirect pass the penguin penalty and get my new website slapped too?

    Why new content? 301 would mean you moved... the update has nothing to do with content, but with links.

    If you do 301 then initially your site may get rank, but then dang...it will also get penguin penalty.

    Yes, the link juice as well as the penguin penalty will pass over to the new site if you just 301 redirect.
    Better to start new link building with authority links.

    Cheers

    It's not very safe.

    A BIG NOOO, YES IF YOU USE REDIRECT using a professional way yes, it will pass. You have to consult a professional for this use.

    More No one will tell you in public.

    I know it has nothing to do with content, I'm not asking that, I am asking about the 301 re-direct. I think I got my answer.

    I might just 301 redirect to a subdomain and copy all the same content over to a subdomain, rather than to the new site, cheers.

    301's will pass the penalty and doesn't work like it used to - better to just take the content and create new website and forget penalized site.

    I did 301 to a site slapped by penguin 2.0, and it was first page till last update, so penalty was definetely not transfered until big refresh.

    I've done this to other sites with less success. I guess it depends, but haven't figured out when and why penalty is transfered.

    Don't do 301 Re-direct, I don't think it'll cause you any benefit. The reason I am telling is that I've already tried it. :D

    I thought it might give a boost for initial week, but even that didn't happened. But in case you wanna try, then feel free to do so. :)

    I don't think 301 Redirect to a fresh domain is a good idea, I've already used this & it works initially but after 3-5 weeks PENGUIN catches it.

    Instead of this I would start with a fresh domain & prepare an organic backlink profile with proper anchor text ratio to make it GOOGLE PENALTY SAFE.:)

    301 works but from my experience you must use it on an aged domain site approx 3 months.
